i do come here in the spirit of partnership to identify those reforms. i note that president obama has already signed seven of the so-called partisan and meaningless bills which he on a regular basis despices in his speeches. he's responded to the employer community by delaying the employer mandate. i wish he would also extend mandate relief to rank and file americans and their families by also delaying the individual mandate. but i'm going to ask you a few pointed questions here. do you think the administration could support as another possible measure repealing the definition of full time of 30 hours which it's never been popularly understood to be and restoring the traditional 40 hour definition as it applies to this act? >> i'll start by saying i'm not the right government official to answer that question. i would defer to treasury on those type of policy calls. >> that's not mine either i'm afraid. >> the tax code, of course, is your forat the so i'll ask you this. can you point to any places where full-time is defined as being 30 hours a week? >> i will look into that and get

, yeah. >> host: republicans love to go barack obama of socials and talked about in a sort of a european left-winger. but in reality even the european left has accepted that basic what came to be known as the washington consensus, although you are arguing really that it belongs in an earlier time period. but even the left except that basic principles about markets, been threatened by the last few years. do you think that the financial crash of 2008 and the ongoing drama associate with that in europe especially could finally spell the end of the market oriented consensus? >> guest: i think it has in many ways. as i tell people, if you are 25 in the united states today and she can't find a job and you are saddled with $100,000 in college debt, i wonder if you're going to believe in capitalism the way somebody did the went to college in the early 1980s and was born into complete a different world, right? i think that's -- that's what's happened with the financial crisis is a deeply undermined a lot of our faith in capitalist institutions. but again no one has found a language to bring the o
the mandate. >> i don't read it that way. rfel and mr. -- the obama administration is saying if you work more than 30 hours a week -- she would have to provide health care or else get it through subsidy in the exchange. that is not through any longer through 2014, the employer will not have to offer coverage to the individual would have to go through the exchange and 2014 to get coverage. many have already seen their businesses ares tried to comply with the 30 hour role. care is not obama ready and it is the american people who bear the burden of you not being ready. for employers and their employees? either one of you. >> i would just say, first of thatthat the requirement employers provide coverage under the affordable care act when it goes into effect only applies to larger employers. which provide coverage to their workers today. so the impact of that provision is actually quite small. -- smallerloyees employers are not subject before and they will not be next year. there is a lot of misunderstanding about what this provision is and who it impacts. >> i think i would stop there. i said ea
. president obama and the band roads have announced that originally in times of enforcing the red line on the serious and chemical weapons use and this most recent incident was not the first, the united states would support its military were the supreme military council specifically so we are not arming. but actually the supreme military council. as you have seen in the press, that has come out that there has been a lot of complaints about the late delivery of those weapons. there are several reasons for that. one is arguments over how effect of this can be because the fight in serious has ended up in the division of the country. some call it a stalemate and whatever we provide to them would not leave to the toppling of the assad regime but only sustaining the fight. the other more enduring argument has been supplying the smc wholesale that could and likely would leave those weapons into falling into the hands of the extremists. as it is currently construct did, that is a distinct possibility. however, i am not rejecting this as a vehicle for supporting the opposition but rather, and w

"mr. president, stop skirting the issue, follow the law, and cancel all foreign aid." our caller is on the republican party. who is your candidate? rubio or ted cruz. >> you said marco rubio and ted cruz. what do you like about both? caller: they are both very knowledgeable about today's issues as far as immigration reform. people talk about immigration reform. i am a hispanic. i am in texas. we are not a dying breed. we do exist. hispanic, female, republican. that is almost non-existent to the mainstream media or to the of the -- other politicians out there. i really do believe these two men would be closer to what reality is. although, there are other hispanics somewhere else, up north, or northeast, areas like that. down here, in texas, arizona, new mexico, all of those states, they deal with immigration reform. they deal with his
on terrorism at this point should also talk about the idea that it's not a false choice to quote obama from the national archives speech between liberty and security. it's a very real choice. and we should be coming to terms with that. >> i think liberty vs. security in the various tradeoffs and how much terrorism and daniel you're willing to accept inflicteden on you would be a great other planl for us to have. >> i'm just saying i think we've had a lot of a kind of -- i think sometimes we treat this conversation like we're children and we want to believe that we can have everything. nd we can't. i'd like democracy, no terrorism, you know, a smaller government. there's all kinds of things you want but you have to look at it in the real context. >> do you want to make the last comment? >> yeah. i actually, you know, as somebody who is not a fan of big government, i share many of those worries. i'm asked constantly about the n.s.a. stuff. i don't know enough of what's going on. but i have this guttural reaction where, no, i don't want my data scooped up vs. the analytical counterterrorism si

's exciting that my vote counts for the selection of obama. but now is the time that women should stand up and see that their vote does really count. >> thank you so much, lillian. >> give it back to congressman gutierrez even though we're familiar with his advocacy work and pushing the legislation forward on this important topic. now in his 11th term in the house of representative, congressman gutierrez has accomplished himself as a congressional leader on behalf of his constituents in chicago and nationwide. his leadership, championing the causes of latino and the immigrant communities has given a voice to the millions of undocumented immigrants that call our country home. on a national level, there's no elected official more committed to or passionate about pro tekting and advocating for our nation's community than representative gutierrez. congressman gutierrez plays a key role in advocating for the immigration reform bill that supports women and children, preserves family unity, and provides the pathway for citizenship. he has led the call for the preservation of the family unit and a
, and president obama has awarded bayard rustin the presidential medal of freedom. but we have not yet seen dr. king's opportunity thrown open to everyone. we have so far to go before a truly great education is offered to every child. listen to our community and partners in the fight. we fight for millions of lgbt students and all those seen as different. they deserve a welcoming audience for their dream, and they deserve to be embraced for who they are, yet, every day, our youth in doors the silence imposed by violence and fear. some have been silenced forever, and we raise our voices in their memory. zakiya gund, gwen aroyyo, carl joseph walker hoover, lawrence kane. bayard rustin was a quaker. he attended meetings each week listening to the voice of the divine that could speak to anyone of us. across this nation, of voices are ready to rise for opportunity and justice and freedom for every young person, no matter who they are, what did look like, or who they love. listen for those forces. lift them up so that they can be heard. when we do that, we shall all rise. thank you for the great hon
you all. [cheers and applause] >> please welcome reverend [applause]e king. >> president obama, mrs. obama, president carter and clinton, congressman lewis, ambassador young, my brother martin iii, to my entire family. i was five months old when my father delivered his "i have a dream" speech and i probably was somewhere crawling on the floor or taking a nap after having a meal. but the day is a glorious day because on this program today we have witnessed a manifestation of the beloved community. and we thank everyone for their presence here today. today we have been honored to have three presidents of the united states. 50 years ago, the president did not attend. today we are honored to have many women in the planning and mobilization of the 50th anniversary of the march on washington. [applause] >> 50 years ago there was not a single woman on the program. today we are honored to have not just one young person but several young people on the program today. it is certainly a tribute to the work and legacy of so many people that have gone on before us. 50 years ago today, in a symbo
. they continue saying that all men are created equal. to the obama administration, some are more equal than others. like we heard about obamacare, big businesses are more equal than we the people. they get an exemption. it is very interesting that the irs was charged with forcing obamacare on us. the labor unions that were pushing and jumping up and down with obama, now they want an exemption. we the people need in exception. it is not by accident that the first three words of the constitution are in big letters saying we the people. we the people. the declaration continues by saying that we are endowed by our creator. very interesting that you don't hear the obama administration uttering those same words. they want you to think that those rights come from government. come of course, if they from government, government can take them away and government can control them, and they are doing precisely that. then after that, it mentions the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. it says that governments are instituted to protect those rights. not to drop those rights
believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in th
vacation questions or -- pre-vacation questions for president obama, and one deals with immigration. we will have tomorrow's news conference live here on c-span and c-span radio. "would you issue an executive order to provide relief to undocumented immigrants of the house is passed the bill. obama insisted during his first term they could not change the laws unilaterally but he did. joining us to talk a bit about that and further action ahead on the house is fawn johnson. what are you hearing about the potential plan b? >> started to talk about it more openly. in the past year or so, they have been really on congress and trying to get something passed in congress. that is everyone's first choice. what are you hearing about the potential plan b? >> started to talk about it more openly. in the past year or so, they have been really on congress and trying to get something passed in congress. that is everyone's first choice. it is slowing down the possibility the house will not pass on the go. people who president obama, as kerry and john put in their story, it expand his current program he
. have seen with obama, this is the line i came up with, i think president obama acts like an executive. he has really pushed a lot of the war and expanded a lot of the global war on terror that has done it through secret operations. a little bit under a year and a a notification to congress, yes, we are doing counterterrorism activity. and then nothing else. these are complicated partnerships and almost secret the conducted entirely at classification level. obama has done a lot of that and does not really talk about it erie it he has chosen to wage war in secret. the thing about doing these things under so much secrecy is ,hat, just as you can expand you can also take it away and not have much of a debate, either. a lot of trust right now in the executive ranch, and maybe there has to be. i am not saying i know the answer here. the way that obama has approached this is he has done quite a bit in a lot of these places, including somalia. the warade it appear is winding down. , will thatn is translates into winding down secret operations he has continued? ,> what you are saying is true h
on washington tomorrow will include speeches by president obama, former president hill clinton and jimmy carter and members of the family of martin luther king, junior. now of for him commemorating the 50th anniversary of the march on washington. analysts include john lewis and andrea young. this is a little more than an hour. >> this is marvin. >> hello, and welcome to the national press club. of program is remembering march, a movement, and a dream. the civil rights movement that once dominated our headlines and began to touch our national conscience and the i have a dream speech of martin luther king. many of us feared the march would turn violent, but it was amazingly peaceful. people bound together in a march, probably at that time the largest demonstration at the washington mall ever. i was there to cover the story. aware this wasg more than a news story. moment for the world to enjoy. >> if any of those had gone bad, we would look bad, but if they go well, it is one of the tributes of democracy. gray,years later, i am and the world is wiser about issues such as economic injustice. we are
this about a year and a half ago, it's called 10 letters. it's letters that president obama reads and i went back and found 10 of them who had written to the president. it has been a pretty good read. when that is done, then we go on to act of congress and another guy at "the washington post" and back in the 1970s there was a big difference between then and now it is just that these guys have written. collision 2012 is written and there was a similar writing back in the 2008 campaign. all the guys involved, and that is coming out in august. the other one is through the perilous fight, which is by steve bulger, also someone i used to work with closely. we look back at the six weeks during the war of 1812. >> we saw the movie. two let us know what you are reading this summer. post on her facebook page or send us a twitter tweet or send us e-mail at booktv@c-span.org. >> mayor and council chairman, they face each other in one of the most contentious and expensive elections in the recent history. raising nearly $5 million in an attempt to hold onto his seat. and vincent gray race only $2 million
of intentions government gradually accumulates power. andwhile i might trust king even president obama to respect the balance between civil liberties and national security, i am not sure i will be able to trust at the next president. that is why we have a constitution and a bill of rights. i am speaking here today as who considers herself a kind of national security hawk. i endorse the patriot act. i thought we needed it. i think we still need to do more to protect american citizens. i do not think guantÁnamo should be closed, because i want to be the mantake men like that was just indicted a year later for benghazi, i want to be able to take him somewhere that is not in the united states where i know he can be safeguarded for trial. the terrible thing about this indictment is that we do not have him. now that we have indicted him, we are not likely to get him unless he has an unfortunate traffic accident in libya, which could happen. but these are the problems and the way in which the president has approached national security. it is, as steve king says, schizophrenic. i knoweptical
was not and still is not spoken at home. the odds were stacked against me. so like barack obama has been eager to harp on the odds for political purposes, in the narrative he has been pedaling for the four to five years. the little people at the bottom of the society don't get a fair shake. millions and billions, according to him, or the richest 1% have edged out everyone else from opportunities for success. america's economy has become a -- for the privilege few, and unless government barack obama's government intervenes heavily, the poor and the middle class will never thrive. in this paradigm, in mr. obama's paradigm i had no business getting out of the ghetto at least not without receiving a welfare check. this is because barack obama doesn't just peddle the benefit of the welfare state. he really ped dahls the welfare state mentality. the mentality is even worse than the welfare state itself. it absorbed individuals of personal responsibility. it confines them to grievants and encourages even justifies their sense of entitlement. since the election of last november, republicans have been
barack obama. as you may recall, the liberal media raved about barack obama's writing ability in the 2008 election. back then, senator obama's rÉsume was quite short, and his supporters often would say with a straight face, that he was just marvelous because he wrote two marvelous books about himself. at first i thought it was a joke. when senator obama actually became president obama, i realized it was no joke at all, i decided that i seriously needed to get with the program. and start believing in the dreamy barack obama world of yes, we can. so i thought that what i needed to do was to write two books about myself, and maybe i too can be president of the united states. [laughter] [applause] so i sat down and wrote a book about myself called "chinese girl in the ghetto." when people asked me what the book is about these days, i usually politely tell them it's about my family's journey from communist china to inner-city oakland california. it's about my journey of getting to know freedom. what i'm really thinking. usually what is really on my mind, i need to hurry up and write another b
campaign for president of the united states. in 2008 she campaigned for for barack obama and joe biden, and she was nominated by president elect obama to be secretary of state. i do not think any of us have lived to see a woman achieve a greater set of goals and a woman who has done more for all of us than secretary hillary rodham clinton. with that, i give this award to hillary rodham clinton, and it is going to be accepted. [applause] >> in 2007 i was honored to serve as hillary clinton's campaign director. my entire family met her at a campaign event in may of that year. having only met hillary clinton as portrayed in media events, i was not prepared for her warm and authenticity. after exchanging greetings, she looked at her son and looked back at me to ask, how is your health care? does it cover everything you need? i am not sure i can explain the warmth her beacon of light provided. in that moment, for me, for our family, for our son, hillary clinton embodied hope, and in our brief conversation, she showed me what makes her the best public servant i believe our country has ever k
have to keep in mind here. >> another thing she encountered in 2007 was that a lot of the obama supporters and in case people don't know, you were an obama supporter, didn't want to relitigate the clinton years. and that caused them to support barack obama instead of hillary clinton. how did she address the fact that she has a record to defend and she has to defend her husband's record as well? >> i really think that her job as secretary of state has solidified her standing as a candidate that happened to be married to a guy that used to be president. but not that his presidency would in any way define her presidency. i think it's important to remember that we have two candidates for president in 2008 that were amazing. historic candidates that made all of us who are democrats so proud of our party and so proud of our country because the two amazing candidates were running. i said to my friends who wither disappointed in me when i supported barack obama, not like i'm going for a good ole boy. this is an extraordinarily difficult decision. and it was a difficult one to me. and in

support the nsa program? caller: i do not. i voted for obama. i amazed of all of the laws that are being passed that are constitutionally questionable. i am wondering why from a media respective -- it seems like one of the -- it should be a debate. where is the limit? it is becoming watered down. we are becoming a police state. it does not seem like anyone is doing anything about it. republicans are the tea party people who -- where does it stop? >> you are calling on our democrat line. we had a little bit of conversation before about how to divide the lines. when you look at the defense bill a few weeks back, there were opposition on both sides of the aisle for that amendment. where do you see this as a political issue? is it democratic or republican? caller: it looks like you have some republicans who are in support of it and some democrats that are in support of it. i am with rand paul on this one. i am questioning why i am a democrat? i lean more with the republicans. i appreciate the house and having tea party representatives there who are standing their ground on some of these crit

under obama? it was basically every major decision, there was something she had to do with the federal government. i found that insulting. we need to put out an alternative to that and that will speak to women. were really successful in putting out a number of images and celebrity ads to target young women. i think one of the things that we need to be doing is recognizing the difference segments of women and targeting the keys are targeting these different segments, recognizing it is a different block. and then meeting women where there are. for young women, a lot of what we're doing in news, we use the technology that college women are using, speak to them through their professors and other students, and peers, and try to meet the more they are. >> on a similar front, marilinda garcia, what do you think could be done, what would be your advice to get more young women to run for office? >> i think programs like this are important because they showcase people liked karin do wonderful work, other elected officials around the country we are around in the country. it seems to me -- the mos

with president obama's recent attempt to get gun control legislation. we had the majority of the public in support of some type of reform, and yet it doesn't pass. and that's unfortunately connected to again something that congressman ellison talked about, the influence of money and lobbyists in politics. so we have a real crisis in our democracy right now. and you know, one of the important sort of forces is labor. unfortunately that's why labor is under attack, right? so we really need to do more to broaden a host of organizations. i mean, traditional civil rights organizations, but it's also crucial that we figure out how to strengthen and expand labor. because as the march on washington movement showed, many other progressive movements are connected to the labor movement. so, so that's part of the struggle. we need to build movements of aggressors, and particularly i would say the labor movement, because the crisis that's being shown a is the economic crisis, but also a lot of the civil rights struggles are connected to the labor struggle in to the growing economic inequality that w
